The Baltimore Ravens and San Francisco 49ers are Super Bowl-bound, who do you want to win Sunday?
If you're a Eagles fan, well, you may still be hiding your shame. If you're a Giants fan – last year's Super Bowl winners – you're probably still shaking your head in disappointment. Either way, the Baltimore Ravens, the American Football Conference champs, will meet the San Francisco 49ers, the National Football Conference champs, in Super Bowl XLVII on Feb. 3. And that presents a dilemma when you are in mourning over your own team's defeat. Who to root for? Which team will you cheer for in the Super Bowl, and why? Tell us in the comments.

The big game is just days away. Are you ready for some football? You still have time to reserve a seat at one of these parties.
That time of year has come again, and even though one team that is not the Eagles (the San Francisco 49ers) is playing another team that is not the Eagles (the Baltimore Ravens), the Super Bowl still manages to bring out the excitement in both sport and non-sports fans. Between the opening performances, halftime show and the eagerly awaited commercials, the actual game is almost incidental. Of course, no Super Bowl is complete without enjoying the game surrounded by friends, fried foods and free-flowing beer.

Just remember to drink responsibly and get home safely…

Michael Pronzato’s football photo won him four tickets to the big game.
Sports images have a unique way of captivating public attention. Perhaps you remember Kirk Gibson’s World Series homerun sprint, overcoming the pain he was suffering to make it to home base. Or maybe you recall the images of high flying Michael Jordan slam dunking a basketball with his tongue out. The human drama involved in sports easily captures our attention – in person and on film. Quality sports shots are somewhat difficult to come by. Most people have limited access to events to photograph them. The further away you are from the event, the harder it becomes to capture the event in the heat of the moment. Nothing is more intimidating than to be on the sidelines of a football game, focused on a play in the field, when out of the blue…
